Book Review - "A Forever Christmas" by Missy Tippens

By Jennifer Hudson Taylor

My Review
This is a wonderful Christmas story that will fill your heart with thanksgiving and joy. The characters are so vivid that you can see them. The two little boys in the story are true to life, as is the heroine and hero as the humorous tension between them is quite entertaining. It's perfect for the season if you're looking for something to help you get into the mood for Christmas. I highly recommend A Forever Christmas!

Sarah Radcliffe's quiet Christmas back in her hometown will be lost if she agrees to direct the church's Christmas pageant. But when she meets two little boys determined to gain their father's attention, Sarah agrees to help. Then she discovers that the dad in question is Gregory Jones, the man she loved and lost. The single dad is working himself to the bone to give his boys the Christmas of their dreams, when all they want is some family time. Time that includes a new mommy. If Sarah can learn to open her heart, she may receive the most wonderful present of all--a family of her own.


This book makes me think of my Christmas at the moment. I'm keeping twin three year old boys who parents don't want them for the holidays. The entire situation is sad, but prayerfully life gets better and my daughters and I will get more joy out of this holiday.
Great review by the way.

That is VERY sad. I can't imagine not wanting to be with my daughter during the Christmas season. I pray you'll be able to give them a loving Christmas filled with Christ's joy, and a feeling of belonging.

Jenn, I'm so glad you enjoyed my story! Thanks for the wonderful review.

Voice, such a sad story! Bless you and your daughters for taking in the twins. I'm sure you'll all be blessed.
